Bryce Fullwood statement (Bryce Fullwood Racing):

I’ve finally got my feet back on the ground after returning from the Worlds in Spain. This will be my last post as a go-karter and I would sincerely like to thank all of my supporters, family and friends for their never ending support throughout the last 6 years, my sponsors for making it all possible and I would like to say a special thanks to the following people:-

Jamie & Lochie McHugh for making it possible for us to race interstate when we first started.

Graham, Margaret & Glen Powles: Graham has been a big part of my karting career and has contributed immensely to my successes. We have formed a great friendship and we’ve had times together that I’ll never forget.

Anthony & Theresa Bartolo for doing their best to give me the best they could and making me feel part of the J&A Family. Also opening up their workshop at all hours, storing our equipment and all dads car parts.

George & Dave Sera for believing in me and giving me a home when I was on my own in Melbourne. Also to George who would drop everything to chauffer me around. I really appreciated it.

James & Sam Sera for being such good friends and supporting me 100% through one of the hardest years of my karting career, giving me a bed whenever I needed it, for Sam having Nesquick in the cupboard and her awesome cooking. James for trying to give me the best go kart he could all year, thanks so much guys.

Craig Denton for always promoting me for bigger and better things in Motorsports, it is very much appreciated.

Lee Hanatschek for his support of me and karting in general in the Northern Territory.

Darwin Karting Association for all of their support over the years.

A special thanks to my pop Tony for driving my kart trailer from one end of the country to the other, time and time again, without you it wouldn’t be possible.

I’d like to thank the following sponsors and organisations, new and old for their support:-
NT Electrical Group, Middys Darwin, Stark Investments, All Tools, Trade Building Supplies, Top End Race, Diggamen, NT Avionics, Frontier Carpets and Vinyls, One Steel Darwin, Radical Systems, Vita Gustafson & Associates, Australian Motorsports Foundation, Fujitsu Cool Driver Program and Cams Junior Development Academy.

Exciting things are happening in the pipeline, I have been named the Junior Development Driver for Pro Drive Racing (Australia) Academy through Ford Performance Racing along with another driver from NZ. I look forward to announcing our 2015 race plans, hopefully in the next couple of weeks.

Until then – Stay tuned
Bryce Fullwood
